A new moving image commission


This unique commission allows an artist working with moving image to develop new work.

Sea-change is a new commissioning opportunity created by Lighthouse, Film London Artists’ Moving Image Network and Picture This. We are delighted to announce that we have selected award-winning artist Claire Hooper for the 2011 Sea-change commission. Sea-change is for London-based artists working with moving image. The programme allows them to create a new work during a residency at Picture This in Bristol, which will be exhibited in England, and beyond.

Claire Hooper has been selected as the recipient of the 2011 Sea-change commission, developed by Lighthouse, Film London Artists’ Moving Image Network, and Picture This.
Hooper was chosen from almost 60 applicants, for the vision for her work, determination and energy, and distinctive way of approaching moving image. She will be provided with a studio space at Picture This in Bristol, and will work with a professional production team plus production, post-production and exhibition facilities. Sea-change will also provide Hooper with a production budget and artist’s fee, enabling her to produce a new artwork which she is titling, Eris. The work will feature in a solo exhibition at Picture This’ Atelier space in early 2012. In addition, the work will be exhibited in collaboration with Lighthouse at a venue in the South East.

Hooper is the recipient of the 2010 Baloise Art Prize, and has been nominated for the prestigious Jarman Award in 2011. This year Hooper will enjoy solo shows at Lothringer 13, Munich and MUMOK (Museum Moderner Kunst Stiftung Ludwig), Vienna. Her previous work has been screened and exhibited at national and international venues including: the Serpentine Gallery, the ICA, Jerwood Space, Art Basel and IT Park Gallery, Taiwan.
